Re: Questions about Putting Your Computer to Sleep

Hi, Dani. I put my computer to sleep frequently, because I don't have air conditioning, and my apartment can reach 100 degrees which could endanger the CPU. I usually don't have trouble with JAWS because I put my computer to sleep. However, I have heard from others that putting the computer to sleep can be a problem once it wakes up. Apparently certain things are either not retained in memory, or something may be corrupted in the memory, not in the actual JAWS files.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Then there is the question of the operating system. JAWS might react differently between Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 etc.
Also there are actually two different ways to "put the computer to sleep". The first way is the conventional "Stand-by method. The second is the "hybernate" method. This involves the writing of what is in memory to the hard disk, then when the computer "wakes up", the memory is rewritten from the disk.
Concerning your final question, depending upon your power settings, you may wake the computer by moving a mouse, by pressing a key such as the PC Cursor key, or by briefly depressing the power button. With the final method, take care not to hold the power button, or it may shut down the computer.
I hope this has helped you.
